DEVICES PURCHASED VIA CENTRECOM

 

If a student experiences a problem with a device that has been purchased through Centrecom, the following process will occur:

  • At recess or lunchtime students can take their device to the IT department. ICT staff will check if it is a software or hardware problem.

  • If it is a software problem they will fix the issue. If the issue is a hardware problem, Sunshine College is not responsible and will not fix the problem.

  • Our IT department will check if the device is under warranty. If so, they will register a repair request through Centrecom.  Centrecom will arrange to visit the school and fix the device. If it is not under warranty the family will need to arrange their own repair.
